Job description

We're making the world of digital assets accessible and secure for everyone. 

Join the mission.

Founded in 2014, Ledger is the global platform for digital assets and Web3. Over 15% of the world’s crypto assets are secured through our Ledger Nanos. Headquartered in Paris and Vierzon, with offices in the UK, US, Switzerland and Singapore, Ledger has a team of more than 700 professionals developing a variety of products and services to enable individuals and companies to securely buy, store, swap, grow and manage crypto assets – including the Ledger hardware wallets line with more than 5 millions units already sold in 180 countries. 

At Ledger, we embody the values that make us unique: Pragmatism, Audacity, Commitment, Trust and Transparency. Have a look at our Origins video here.

The goal is to create your one-stop shop for everything crypto: allow users to get the most from web3  right from Ledger Live: buy, sell, swap and stake crypto via multiple web3 services. If you’re passionate about coins, tokens, or staking, have an opinion between Zero-knowledge proofs and Optimistic roll-ups, or are a weekend crypto trader, this role is for you.
